I recently bought a WaA marked French 1935A pistol at a gun show. The gun had a broken firing pin that I replaced, but I find now that the safety can now only be applied with the hammer down. Is this normal? It seems strange to me that a safety can only be applied in the "at rest" position, but the French did have some odd ideas for firearms. If anyone is interested, the gun came to me in a P35p holster, dyed black inside and out, with the lift strap cut off. The gun and spare magazine seem to fit it quite well.
